Lydia Adler Okrent‘s collection of neckwear entitled ‘Dirty Danny’ reeks a special blend of Sculpey, leather, paper and rubber tubing (some of Okrent’s accessory making materials). The range is inspired by a 2007 article in Butt magazine chronicling the uncouth life of an Amsterdam homo hobo. Okrent refers to her work as ‘neckwear’ and makes a new piece to wear herself or give to a friend nearly everyday. She lives and works in New York City.
